Looks like an awesome cook! I bought a block two years ago (Amazon) of all places. It arrived with a small chip out of a corner. I contacted Amazon and they told me I couldn't return it because it was considered a food product. So they just told me to keep it and credited me my money back!!
As JRWhitee commented, bring it up slow but hot! I like mine at least 450-500 for a nice sear on the scallops. Use the drop of water test. If it sizzles up and evaporates it's ready! FYI, a thin coat of Olive Oil will keep the scallops from sticking. Also, thin sliced flank steak marinated in a little Thousand Island and then thrown on to medium rare.......Awesome!!
